Equal Justice Coalition Launches New Website

Equal Justice Coalition encourages private attorneys, bar associations, and other advocates to support civil legal aid using its new website

BOSTON, December 18, 2015 – The Equal Justice Coalition, a coalition of bar associations and private attorneys committed to equal justice for all, recently launched a new website to support the coalition’s work to increase state funding for civil legal aid. The redesigned site, with crisp visuals and an easy to navigate layout, enables private attorneys, bar associations, and other advocates to quickly connect with the effort to expand access to the courts for low-income people with civil (non-criminal) cases.

To mobilize support, the website features “Action Alerts,” allowing advocates to quickly plug in to the latest campaign news and contact their elected officials to voice support for civil legal aid. The site also showcases past and future events the Equal Justice Coalition holds in support of civil legal aid, from the annual Walk to the Hill lobby day to the Legislative Recognition Reception.

The Equal Justice Coalition hopes that the revamped website will bolster their continued efforts to increase state funding for civil legal aid.
